ABIM Board Certified physicians represent a community of internists and subspecialists with a shared purpose of staying current with the knowledge and practice of medicine. ABIM certification and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) are created and enhanced by this community as we continue to actively engage with physicians from all across the country to ensure Board Certification serves as a distinguishing marker in which all of us can take pride.
Please join us in this effort by considering a formal role with ABIM’s Governance, or by providing essential feedback as part of ABIM’s Community Insights Network.
ABIM Specialty Boards
Each Specialty Board is typically comprised of physicians who practice in that specialty and two non-physician members, to articulate their individual perspectives as patients and members of the health care team. All members play a pivotal role in advancing ABIM’s mission. By serving on a Specialty Board, members provide important insights on current and future trends in medicine and serve as a voice for their peers in the formation of ABIM’s certification and MOC programs.
Service on a Specialty Board includes two all-day meetings in Philadelphia annually, as well as several webinars throughout the year. Nominations are due by February 8, and 3-year terms begin July 1, 2018. You can learn more about these opportunities and important deadlines, as well as read stories from other physicians currently serving on ABIM’s Governance.

ABIM’s Community Insights Network
The Community Insights Network is a community of your peers providing ABIM feedback on projects and initiatives to help inform potential programmatic changes or improvements. Physicians can indicate how often they’d like to be contacted, along with the types of engagement and topic areas that most appeal to them. Activities include short surveys and polls, phone interviews, and in-person events. Participating in the Community Insights Network is designed to be flexible and something physicians can do as they have time. It only takes a few minutes to sign up at www.abim.org/jointhenetwork.
